St. Louis Blues Chairman Tom Stillman announced today the Blues have signed President of Hockey Operations and General Manager Doug Armstrong to a four-year contract extension.

Armstrong's contract also includes a club option for a fifth year.

Armstrong, currently in his 10th season with the club, originally joined the Blues as the Vice President of Player Personnel in 2008 and was named the 11th General Manager in Blues history during the 2010 offseason. Since taking the reins, Armstrong has led the Blues to a 337-185-56 regular-season record which serves as the fourth-best mark in the NHL since the 2010-11 campaign.

He has also guided the team to six consecutive postseason berths, making the Blues one of only four teams to have accomplished that.

In his second season as General Manager, Armstrong captured the 2012 General Manager of the Year Award after leading the club to a 49-22-11 record and its first Central Division title in 12 seasons.
